POLITE WORLDWIDE and AKILA collaborate to introduce SUSTAINABLE EYEWEAR.
These sunglasses are biodegradable and recyclable. Our suppliers use a bio-based acetate. This acetate is made from sustainable wood and cotton fibers making it oil-free, eco-friendly, and importantly biodegradable. Acetate is also produced in sheet form which is hand-cut not molded in machines like plastics. Which reduces the environmental impact of production and creates a superior hand-made product. The materials used are sustainable and able to be upheld long term. TERRA is unisex, available in three colors, black, green, and pink for this initial collection.
This item is made in limited quantities for this special release.

HOW TO CARE
BIODEGRADABLE AND RECYCLABLE SUNGLASSES
This model is called Terra, which means earth. The frames are made from bio-acetate, a polymer derived from wood pulp and other natural cotton fibers. This material replaces chemical and oil-based plasticisers with environmental, renewable resources. The material is also biodegradable and recyclable. Our lens is made from FDA-approved nylon that can be recycled.
Terra glasses are meticulously handcrafted to last a lifetime.
No Waste Production Approach
Polite Worldwide operates under the notion of impact enterprise, shepherded by a dedication to conservation. This means our collections are small, and unique, singularly curated based on demand.
We believe in circularity, as such, our products are hand made with recycled and considered materials. Every piece is attentively handcrafted, consciously regarded as an ethical piece of art meant to accompany its wearer throughout their lifetime.
